Shenmue 3: HD Release of Series Could Revive the Franchise

"For anyone who hasn’t heard, Sega is making HD remakes of their greatest hits including games like Jet Set Radio. An HD re-release of the Shenmue series could be just the push Sega would need to make the pending third installment a reality."-Rantgaming.com (Dev, PS3, Sega, Shenmue II, Shenmue III, Xbox 360)

Yu Suzuki started his own company and doesn't even own the Shenmue license

Did you read the article? He says in an interview he can obtain the license without much of a problem.

I hope he does have some investors because Sega won't just give him the license free of charge

@NYC_Gamer- Wonder why your getting disagrees? Your right. Suzuki CURRENTLY doesn't own the Shenmue liscense...FACT.

Unfortunately Sega has the IP. Only hope is that Yu Suzuki can somehow gather investors and buy the IP from Sega. He actually said that was a possibility last November I believe. I still have my dreamcast along with S1 and S2 (DC) import and those are my greatest games of all-time. It was so ahead of it's time but it was also so immersive (atmosphere, story, music, characters) that no other game to this day has came even close to this.

On a side note, let's remember that Shenmue 1 sold over a million copies and given the small install base that was really good. Sega messed Shenmue up. In order for Shenmue to profit the entire install base for the dreamcast had to purchase Shenmue 1 twice. And then to turn around and port S2 to the Xbox and we already know what kind of system that was geared towards. That was a huge mistake. I wonder if things would have been different if it was ported to the PS2. It's just adds to a long list of Sega mess ups. But I am also thankful that Sega gave Yu Suzuki the green light to make these 2 masterful games.

I was considering Shenmue 2 for my Xbox....
... but it only came with the english, dub, and no option for the original language, so I never bought it, for that reason.

When these games DO get new HD-releases, I hope they'll come with the original language as an option. I liked the first game, but the english dub was pretty bad.

Without doing the english voices all over again it would be best that Sega kept the HD remakes in Japanese with english subs.

lol I loved the English dub in Shenmue 1 and in the Xbox version of Shenmue 2 , Get the DC version of shenmue 2 its in Japanese but its PAL only. The bad voice acting added to game for me! So bad it was good

Kickstarter?

I would sell my soul for Shenmue 3. Hell, I'd sell it for Shenmue 1&2 as HD remakes!
Magnus  +   1077d ago
I want this HD remake hopefully they release both HD remakes on PS3 and 360 which will show Sega the sales figures and prove to Sega fans love the Shenmue franchise. And hopefully it will show Sega we want Shenmue 3.

I think Shenmue should be rebooted for a next gen console.
